Microsoft Issues MSFS, A310 Update

First update for the A310 since its release.

A relatively small update from the Microsoft team fixes several bugs with the simulator. However, the main focus of the update is the Airbus A310 developed by iniBuilds. Several issues have been fixed related to all kinds of different aspects of the plane, such as the textures, EFB, FMC, sounds and more.

The update, which goes by version number 1.29.30.0, marks the first update after the release of the 40th Anniversary Edition just under a month ago. It’s also the first update for the A310 by iniBuilds, a plane that is quickly on its way to becoming a community favourite.
